Another example of Moose Lace, although larger and more involved than this Moose Lace Afghan, is the HeartStrings #A88 Lacie Blankie. Be sure to check it out, too.
You might be interested also in seeing a couple of smaller moose lace projects (hint: these make quick knits for sensational gifts) – #H24 Coronet Collaret and #H85 Rock Star Choker.
